Happy Endings' Options Dwindling in Wake of USA Network's Failed Rescue Attempt
It’s looking less likely that Happy Endings will live up to its title.
Three weeks after ABC pulled the plug on the beloved (yet under-watched) comedy, sources confirm to TVLine that the show’s Season 4 options are narrowing now that USA Network has passed on picking up the series.
According to Vulture, which first broke the news of the collapse in talks between Happy Endings producer Sony and USA, TBS (which famously rescued Cougar Town from ABC’s scrap heap) and NBC remain in the mix. TVLine’s sister site Deadline, meanwhile, has floated the idea Netflix or Amazon acquiring the show.
“Sony is still working on it,” a Happy source tells TVLine. “They’re battlers.”
But time is running out. Sony’s options on the show’s principal cast are set to expire later this month.
Thoughts? Still holding out for a miracle?
